  • Psychology is the study of human health and behaviour affected by their mind. Psychology courses in India are offered at various levels i.e. Diploma courses in Psychology, Certificate courses in Psychology, Bachelor degree courses in Psychology as well as Postgraduate courses in Psychology. Moreover, there are many research-level courses in Psychology and part-time or online courses in Psychology.
    While, Psychology is a vast subject itself, but every course that requires studying about Human anatomy and related subjects also include basic concepts of psychology in its course-curriculum. Psychology as a subject is generally included in counselling courses, physiotherapy therapeutic and other medical courses. Psychology course requires studying and understanding human brain development, consciousness, behaviour and personality and related topics.
    Psychology is a practical subject, so that leaves us with very limited options when it comes to distance learning mode. You can enrol yourself in IGNOU [ www.ignou.ac.in ] (Indira Gandhi National Open University). It is, without a hint of doubt, one of the best open universities in India. They have classes, that are optional, but you are required to attend the practicals. They have internals, assignments and projects. They even provide internships at PG level.
    Another option is Annamalai University Directorate of Distance Education [ www.annamalaiuniversity.ac.in/dde/ ] . They provide you with study material and call you for a personal contact programme at the end of each year to conduct the practicals. These PCPs are very helpful. They conduct lectures too for the next academic year.

    There are other universities too, but these two are pretty fine to consider, IGNOU being the best.
